    I received this book for free from the publisher SparkPress as part of a promotional blogger unboxing campaign I give this book 3.5 stars which rounds up to 4 This is probably the most unique book I have read so far this year Up until I got about halfway through the book I thought it was weird It was odd and bizarre, kind of in a Roald Dahl way, but stranger It took me a while to get used to it and the world I ve never encountered a world quite like this one before, so there was definitely a learning curve One thing that really threw me for a loop early on was the amount of death in this book I wasn t expecting there to be so much of it and for it to be somewhat gruesome But once I got used to the peculiarities of the book, I started to really enjoy it This book follows the typical quest storyline, but it was still a lot of fun As for the characters, it was interesting to see a grandfather as a main character in YA book You don t see that too often I think my fav...

    From my review at motherbookerblog.com As soon as I read the summary for Above the Star I knew I wanted to read it It gave me ideas of Neil Gaiman, The Princess Bride, and plenty of other great fantasy tales I loved the idea of the triple perspectives of the different generations and was fascinated by Jarr Wya So, when I was given the chance to read the book I leapt at it And I ve never been happier about anything The book was utterly captivating from the first page onwards The characters are well written and feel natural They are presented realistically and all have obvious, humans flaws Basically, they re all recognisable as people you will have experienced in real life The relationships between the three main characters are all wonderfully realised and they provide some great moments of emotion in the middle of all the epic fantasy As much as this book is about magic and strange creatures, it is the tale of a family united through a difficult time It the story of love and how far someone will go to protect the people that mean the most ...
